Tokyo’s Biggest Festival Cancelled!
- ccostello3, CNN iReport producer
Two months after the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Sanja Festival at Asakusa’s Senso-ji temple is one of the largest in Tokyo and probably all of Japan, but has been cancelled! Every year over the two day festival almost 1-2 million people cram in to watch the famous festivities! But this year there is nothing! As you can see, what has always been a crowded place for the festival has become almost empty!
